Our weekend road trip
Evan and I decided to head out to Bisbee yesterday to see what this town was all about. It turned out to be a small town that is primarily built into the side of a mountain. While walking around town, we discovered many antique stores, restaurants, and art galleries. The locals were very outgoing and friendly and we learned a little about the history of the town. Bisbee is also home to the The Bisbee 1000 Great Stair Climb. The town has 9 different sets of stairs that allow visitors to journey up the side of the mountain. Now we didn't climb all 1,000 stairs but we tackled at least half of them, maybe more. We climbed up fairly high and had a great view of the town.
After hiking and shopping, we tried out a local Mexican restaurant for lunch. Fabulous food and great service!
Our final stop of the day was the Queen Mine Tour. We got to dress up in slickers and hard hats for the tour which was kind of silly but fun at the same time. We rode on a mine train into the mine and learned about miners and their work lives. Overall, the tour was informative and fun.
Unfortunately, the weekend is over and Evan is back to classes. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Tricare will come through and authorize my referral so we can get the ball rolling on this whole RE thing. I'm looking forward to some great weather this week which means long walks for the dogs!
